ALERT! Here is The Trailer for Paul Thomas Anderson’s ‘Phantom Thread’

The trailer for Paul Thomas Anderson’s second collaboration with Daniel Day-Lewis, Phantom Thread, is finally here. And it is everything PTA fans should expect. Full of mystery, suspense, quiet tension and, yes, an aging Daniel Day-Lewis, this one should not be missed.

Check it out:


Pus, we have a new, detailed synopsis:

Set in the glamour of 1950s post-war London, renowned dressmaker Reynolds Woodcock (Daniel Day-Lewis) and his sister Cyril (Lesley Manville) are at the center of British fashion, dressing royalty, movie stars, heiresses, socialites, debutants and dames with the distinct style of The House of Woodcock. Women come and go through Woodcock’s life, providing the confirmed bachelor with inspiration and companionship, until he comes across a young, strong-willed woman, Alma (Vicky Krieps), who soon becomes a fixture in his life as his muse and lover. Once controlled and planned, he finds his carefully tailored life disrupted by love. With his latest film, Paul Thomas Anderson paints an illuminating portrait both of an artist on a creative journey, and the women who keep his world running. Phantom Thread is Paul Thomas Anderson’s eighth movie, and his second collaboration with Daniel Day-Lewis.

This looks unsurprisingly fascinating and gorgeous. Alongside Daniel Day-Lewis you see relative unknowns Lesley Manville and Vivki Krieps, both who will undoubtedly captivate audiences. Radiohead guitarist Johnny Greenwood is back scoring Phantom Thread, and Anderson is doing his own cinematography.

Phantom Thread opens Christmas Day. Be there or be square.
